An orange tree may bear oranges for more than 100 years. The famous “Constable Tree,” an orange tree brought to France in 1421, lived and bore fruit for 473 years.

snip "Coca-Cola was originally green. Shocked "

And originally contained cocaine (the coke). My mother told me that when she was a teen, the slang for coco-cola was "dope" As in ordering a glass of dope.

In the 16th century, Dutch carrot growers invented the orange carrot in honor of the House of Orange, the Dutch Royal Family. They did this by cross breeding pale yellow carrots with red carrots.

Peppers can contain up to
six
times as much vitamin C as oranges! The highest levels are found
when the peppers are in their "green" stage. Hot peppers contain
less vitamin C than the milder bell peppers.
